It was little bit more difficult than I thought to adapt configuration in the .cfg file to tex4ht-ooffice.tex, but the patch is finally here.

hi michal - sounds great. my only comment is, why the Pictures/ subdirectory in the first place? seems like that name should be configurable as well.

regarding tex4ht.env, this is a different topic, but do we really have to have different .env's for unix and windows? as i recall, one of my tex live colleagues insisted on this many years ago for the sake of some very small difference. unfortunately, diffs don't show anything obvious.

anyway, the near-total redundancy (even in tex4ht-env.tex!) is awful. at the very least, the windows .env should just somehow include the unix one and then override anything that is needed.

Images in ODT format should be saved in Pictures folder. These pictures should be directly in this folder, there shouldn't be any subfolders. oolatex recreates directory structure of images, so these images which were placed in subfolders of directory with the compiled document are rendered as missing.

I proposed a solution for removing directory structure om TeX.sx:


I think it needs some more testing and also modifications of tex4ht.env for Windows. If no problems will be reported, I can adapt changes in the config file to tex4ht-ooffice.tex and tex4ht-env.tex
